About the Author:

Olivier Cotte worked as an animation and computer artist for movies, and as a animation director between 1987 and 2002. He is a journalist, historian and animation teacher. He studied in fine art school and at the Sorbone and started making his first films at the age of fourteen.
He collaborates as a journalist on numerous film animation and new digital tools magazines. He has written nine books on animation, of which one is a technical and historic world encyclopedia of animation "Il était une fois le dessin animé” (Once Upon A Time.in Animation - 2001), two monographs about animation directors (David Ehrlich, Georges Schwizgebel) and has also translated a book on animation methods "The Animator's Survival Kit” by Richard Williams into French.

He also works with international animation festivals and major events in animation as a selection jury member and jury member and lecturer on animation history and teaches in several animation schools in France and around the world.

Review:

"Oliver Cotte's excellent new book, Secrets of Oscar-winning Animation, offers a chance to revisit 13 of these eclectic Oscar-winning shorts, through in-depth interviews and behind-the-scenes notes about the making of each mini masterpiece. Cotte does such a great job we kind of wish he had compiled a whole series of books about each and every animated short favored by old man Oscar.” - Animation, September 2007
